Bus Route to be Withdrawn

A reminder that the X57bus service to Manchester is due to stop running after the last day of operation on Saturday 8 January 2022  

The X57 Snake route, operated by Hulleys of Baslow, has for the past 18 months, provided a useful link from Sheffield over the Snake Pass through Glossop and onto Manchester.

Sadly, despite the service receiving a positive reception at its launch, the lack of passenger numbers has prompted a decision for the service to be withdrawn.

Hulleys Managing Director; “For a small operator such as ourselves launching such a high-profile service connecting two cities over a tortuous road was always going to be challenging, but we gave it our very best day after day, in spite of the weather, road closures, temporary traffic lights and so on.”  “If buses could run on goodwill then who knows; a huge thank you to those who supported it, either on-board or just cheering from the roadside.
